    design help

    building a box for a friend its gonna be 1 alpine type s 12" sub alpine calls for 1.55 optimum ported so the box is gonna be 14"x14"x20" which roughly is 1.86 cubes now my calculation is that with 2 2" areo ports to tune to 32hz they are both gonna need to be 8.4" long my question will that be enough port area?

    A single 3 would be fine for that sub so I would assume 2 2"s would probably be okay. do you think you could try 2 3"s and just lengthen them to where it is tuned correctly?
